Castro Drops Komphela Hint…

Leonardo Castro Wants 90 Minutes For Kaizer Chiefs

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 23, 2018 03:36 PM

Leonardo Castro has dropped a hint to Steve Komphela that he wants to play 90 minutes for Kaizer Chiefs as he targets another Amakhosi goal.

The 28-year-old scored on his debut for the Glamour Boys against Baroka last month but is yet to complete a full game having been brought on or off in all five of his Chiefs appearances so far.

Having started against both Golden Arrows in the Nedbank Cup and Cape Town City in the Absa Premiership, the Colombian is targeting his first full game for the club when they take on Bloemfontein Celtic.

Speaking to the club’s official website this week, Castro seemed to be giving a nudge to Komphela to give him the chance to finish the match this weekend, although did admit that he understood his slow introduction to the team.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns man said, “I hadn’t played for a while at Sundowns… It means that I was a bit down on confidence, but above all, I lacked match-fitness when arriving at Chiefs. 

“However, it’s getting better with each week and I feel close to playing the full 90 minutes. We often get a lot of chances in the last minutes of games. If I am given the chance to finish a match, I know that I will score more goals.”

Chiefs tackle Siwelele at 20h15 tomorrow evening.

@Michaeltshigama. If Castro has scored a goal and assisted another in the few games that he either started on the bench or came off in the second half, but is labelled finished...then what about your overrated and highly-priced Brookie?

The problem with Steve is that he plays Castro as a second striker, which is a stupid decision. The sooner we realise that this cowch knows more English than football, the better.

"Sundowns is the best in the country and in the continent," Gould said of the 2016 Champions League winners. "We just need to do what we need to do and forget about what our situation is, where we are. We need to focus on that game, that's what we need to really do. "We have to concentrate on the game and we are going to give it our all. We don't go to the game and say we want to lose or draw, we want to win. The experienced centre-back is hoping for the fixture to deliver on its reputation for entertaining, free-flowing football. It is always interesting when Sundowns and SuperSport play. I mean it's never been a dull game," Gould said

@Hlasela_Khosi ABET will not fail you! Go there and ask for the definition of the word "season".

It doesn't matter how you love Chiefs. The thing is that Chiefs will not win the league. I know that if you love your team, it is hard to admit that your team lack the ammunition to win it.

Right now I'm praying that this idiot Steve does not reinstate Maluleka into the starting line up.

If we are serious about winning a title, we need to do like we used to. Approach championship games with championship players. Who remembers days when faced with championship games and suddenly you'd see the like of Joosta starting a match...
